RASTELLI RACCORDI 1952-2022. We have reached our 70th year of activity and FLUID, the prestigious German magazine, presents us with a dedicated article
Rastelli Raccordi celebrates its seventieth anniversary this year.
Rastelli Raccordi was founded in 1952 by Adriano Rastelli. After the first steps in the field, the company quickly became the first Italian manufacturer of fittings according to DIN 2353 and reached a leading position on the Italian market of hydraulic fittings. Thanks to the introduction of an efficient company organization, a continuous integration of new technologies has been made possible, such as the use of galvanized steel and stainless steel. In this way, the product range could also be expanded with JIC37° fittings, BSP-BSPT-NPT adapters and hose fittings. Currently the company, based in Villanterio (PV) is one of the world’s leading manufacturers in this sector. The company, still owned by the family, currently employs 190 employees, has four branches in Italy (in Turin, Padua, Bologna e Avellino) and strong internationalization. The company has branches in France (Chartres and Nantes), Germany (Ostfildern-Nellingen), Spain (Martorelles) and China (Nanjing), all organized in full operational autonomy. Each branch has its own commercial, administrative and logistic structure and can draw on warehouse stocks for their respective markets.
The issue of sustainability has acquired ever greater significance. No harmful solvents are used in the production, galvanizing, degreasing and washing – and, for the disposal of the oil, the company uses biodegradable solvents. In its workshops, the company has also equipped itself with systems for recovering oil from machines and waste from processing and washing plants. The recovered oil is reused in order to minimize waste and protect the environment. After the galvanizing process, water is recovered and reused, made possible thanks to investments in a purification system and the decision to equip all production sites with waterproof floors to avoid soil pollution. Rastelli Raccordi produces about 24 tons of fittings daily for export all over the world.
